Efficient WLAN for Manufacturing, Distribution & Logistics Facilities
Manufacturing, distribution, and logistics companies often have multiple geographically distributed sites requiring mobile connectivity. These organizations depend on accurate inventory to function but recognize that each site’s radio frequency (RF) profile can change radically during a single day as the volume and type of materials stocked fluctuates. As manufacturing, distribution, and logistics firms move to automated pickers, the accuracy and uptime of the WLAN become mission critical. Flexibility and scalability are crucial, as the environment may expand relatively suddenly. Finally, simple, easy-to-use management is a central requirement, since many organizations do not have a WLAN expert onsite. Aerohive’s unique controller-less architecture makes it simple and cost effective to add coverage – just add another AP. While Aerohive access points enable distributed communications and policy, management is centralized, and can even be hosted online.
